Work Description: 
A central ochre brown presence dominates the central area of this vertical canvas. A mottled yellow and maroon lifeline runs up its center from the bottom edge of the canvas. Black and white regions fill the composition on either side of the central being. Deep crimson pigment fills the small area above this scene, and a single flash of bright red sits amidst this field at the top left.
